A day after Congress ousted ruling Bhartiya Janta Party from the three Hindi heartlands of the country in Assembly Elections 2018, Maharashtra Navnirman Sena chief Raj Thackeray attacked the Congress and party president Rahul Gandhi and referred him as 'Pappu'. Mr Thackeray also called him 'Param Pujya' as his party defeated ruling saffron party.

"Rahul Gandhi was alone in Gujarat, even in Karnataka and now too. Now Pappu has become Param Pujya. Will his leadership be accepted at the national level, you are seeing it," he said.

MNS chief Thackeray also took a dig at the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) and said the party was bound to be defeated because of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and party president Amit Shah's behaviour.

"It was bound to happen....The way Amit Shah and Modi ji behaved in the past four years. It is all clear to the people of India now... they failed in all fronts and they have nothing to show... so they are playing Ram Mandir card but people are smart enough," he added.

The grand old party is to form its government in Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan after Mayawati's BSP extended her support to the party to keep BJP out of power.
